ENTSO-E Launches a Web-Based Public Consultation on the Operational Planning and Scheduling Network Code

(PresseBox) (Brussels, ) ENTSO-E launches a web based public consultation on the Operational Planning and Scheduling Network Code (OPS NC) and invites the interested parties to submit comments by 7 January 2013. During this consultation period, ENTSO-E will also hold a workshop with the DSOs Technical Expert Group (TEG) on 20 November 2012, and a public stakeholder workshop on 21 November, in Brussels to provide information about, and receive feedback on the draft network code.

As part of the web based public consultation, ENTSO-E issues a draft of the network code accompanied by a supporting paper, providing an outline of the high-level approach in developing this network code and giving a response to feedback received at the workshops with the DSOs TEG and stakeholders on 23 May and 25 July 2012. All the materials of the workshops can be accessed here.

All comments on the draft OPS NC must be submitted via the ENTSO-E web consultation interface. Comments not submitted via this channel will not be considered as formal comments in this consultation. Further information on how to submit comments can be accessed here.

All comments will be published when the web-based consultation has ended. ENTSO-E will review each comment and use them to form decisions about how to, where appropriate, improve and further develop the draft network code.

ENTSO-E will present and discuss the preliminary assessment of comments at the workshops with the DSOs TEG and stakeholders at the end of January 2013. ENTSO-E's assessment of all comments, as well as the final network code submitted to ACER, will be published by April 2013.

The draft code published as part of this consultation has evolved since ENTSO-E received the EC mandate in February 2012 to draft this code and to submit the final code to ACER.

The OPS NC is being developed by ENTSO-E in accordance with the processes established in line with Regulation (EC) 714/2009 and follows ACER's Framework Guidelines on Electricity System Operation.
